    Unicorns on roller skates. My day is now complete.

    You just know they’re pink with sparkly laces, too. :)

    I’m fascinated too. That looks like a very sensible design, given Marigold’s excellent sense of balance. Plenty of support for her ankles (excuse me Q4horse I’ve forgotten the correct term). And plenty of protection. Ms. Simpson, you have outdone yourself. Realistic skates for unicorns.

    But, pray tell .. .where did she get them?
    (I’m reading a comic about a unicorn … and I’m wondering about the details …)

    Yes Pheebs that’s a roller SKATE not those fancy new Inline Blade deals you’re used to. Marigold may be as old as the heavens and the stars and the Earth its self but her heart is in the 60s by the time you have grand kids she’ll be blading when they are hovering. Though a skate for a hoof is in its self a wounder I suppose so Maybe she’s not out of date as much as she is just not human, but your giving that the same look you gave the Jazz record. In a way it’s better Vasily this way, as an Ice skate would not have been as fun to wounder at (or draw) Next Question though, Is Marigold in to rinks with music and organized paned activity or is she more of an outdoor, do things your own way , skate on whatever you find in your environment type?

    Also now I want to see her Surf, Ice skate, ride a bike, hula hoop on her horn, skate board, hang glide, scuba dive, ride a segway,hacki-sack,fly a kite,play hockey, ride a unicycle, dress like a flying ace,ride a scooter,drive a go-kart,and teach Phoebe the unicorn invention of ridding in side a bubble.

    I would never have though to imagine what a unicorn’s roller skates would look like. I love this strip.

    That’s an interesting design. It won’t handle uneven surfaces very well and what does she use for brakes? She could use her butt or tail I suppose. Those are fetlocks and pasterns ujean. The ankle on a horse is called the hock, its the angled joint halfway up the leg. Equines run around on the very tips of there fingers and toes and have extremly long foot and hand bones. Those joints just above the hoof corrospond to your finger and toe joints. The wrist is located where you expect the knee to be halfway up the front leg.

    Now there’s something you just don’t see everyday; a unicorn on roller skates.

    I’m interested in how she’ll move in them.

    I’d like to know how she ties the laces.

    It’s been shown she can move things with the magic of her horn, so I’m guessing that’s how she does it.

    I was kind of going some place but then mid post my mind caught a 2nd possibility and then came up with a 3rd thing. Some times I read these and don’t have a lot to say, other times I just get too caught up in some thing like Unicorn Roller-skates. I don’t know if people like short and to the point or long and rambler with no direction better.

    Any how you should consider being a scout badge counselor for scouts who want to learn about horses. your always full of interesting facts. Is that horse sense?
